Moving Steel, 36 x 36, oil on canvas
A few years ago I visited five different steel mills in the western Pennsylvania region. From those visits I've been doing a series of industrial paintings. In a way it is to document an important aspect of this region's history before it is gone. This mill makes couplers for the railroad industry and it is just a few blocks from my studio.
